It is quite dense, but also fairly readable.

An easier read is the series of books by Timothy Wyllie regarding his own life from the perspective of a rebel angel, which also includes a lot of information from The Urantia Book. I found these books both interesting and entertaining. Some of it may seem far-fetched, and yet it all makes a certain sense.

Who knows!

I read the Urantia Book many years ago and the sections about Jesus were interesting. As for the cosmological super-universes, I don't have any comments to share since, like Buddha's Noble Silence on metaphysics, I tend not to get into such discussions.

In any case, I have since shifted my attention to PRACTICE and have not looked at that book in years though I think that I still have it.

A friend told me once,... you wake up where ever you believe you will wake up... I love this idea! :D so, in the afterlife, if you want to find me, I will either be in the forest hiking or at the diner having a piece of pie! But, of course,... I won’t know if this is true until then.

Wouldn’t it be cool if when I came back my name was Anala!?! :cool:

I woke up finding myself in this physical world and things have consistently
changed.
The one thing that has been a constant is a desire for Love in it's purest form.


My hopes is that it will be similar except without the physical aspects. Which I call the Spirit world.Which I also imagine would be a place of learning,while still desiring this Pure Love.:idea:

How would you define "Pure Love"? The word "love" is often used very casually.

I don't believe I can define it.
Though I have experienced a drop of Pure Love that
is beyond what has been available to me in this physical world.
I instinctively knew it as where I came from and where I will return.

So my beliefs about Pure Love are:
What I experienced was still limited and that there is more of this Pure Love yet to be unveiled.
I can not say what the Purest form of this Love is.My mind and vocabulary does not do it justice.
I also believe that it is the "Force" that drives Life in a underlying core energy level.
The Force of Life to Live breaking through the force of death.
Many of the Love religions and practices point to it and attempt to describe it.
I do love the way Rumi writes about it.He gets to the heart of the matter.

I can say when Pure Love essence is present, it seems I am not.
It's Unity without even knowing what Unity is,
as when the raindrop falls into the ocean, as if it always WAS the ocean.
It's the Spring sun rays warming the face.
Warmth infilling your Being if only for a Breath.
There are so many limited ways I could write about Pure Love.
I know nothing.Except it IS and it resides in us All and in All to some degree.
Even the most hideous person ever encountered is only acting out of their Pure Love desires being unmet.
I love the term Great Mystery, that which is yet to be discovered or unveiled and cannot be fully Known in the physical.
Can I ever end learning of Pure Love, I don't know but I think not.
I once read the phrase "Infinite Love and Power" and the word Infinite in conjunction with Love and Power blew my mind and world wide open.
I have not even scratched Pure Love with my words.
It is so Glorious and Alive that one needs to experience IT, to do the dance.

ImthatIm....you know Still_Waters just tricked you...wanting to drink in words
spoken about Pure Love...and probably for all of us to read them, too.
